The food just doesn't let you down. Big, delicious portions. Doesn't really matter what you choose from the menu, I haven't yet been disatified. This is very popular, so it is always very cowded. Not much space, which on the other hand makes the atmosphere.

Well, I must say that I was expecting bit more as I knew the reputation of this restaurant. Food was ok but didn't make me feel satisfied totally, something was missing? The service and staff was very friendly and the atmosphere is unique. Anyway, food did not play the main role if I may say so. So I think it's... More

Delightful experience. The decor is very tsar-period russian, ambiance is perfect. Portions are very generous and very delicious. We ordered the "appetizer sampler" for 2 people, and it was perfect for the 5 of us. The Ivan's Sword of meat was cooked perfectly.

Ive visited this restaurant, when i miss russian food made with heart and it never fails. Authentic atmosphere, good food. Service is sometimes a bit slow (waited for dessert 35 minutes..) so order enough vodka at start.

This restaurant has one of the most interesting decors I've ever seen. There are several different dining rooms, each with a different theme. The food is great but it's the atmosphere that really warrants a five star rating. For a classy, fun dinner out, Saslik is tops.

Serves classic Russian dishes in an environment that reminds of the Tsar era. Try the: Pickled Cucumber, Blini with Roe or Caviar and for the main dish Bear (braised or flambéed).

If you wanna have the "experience of you life" what comes either to russian food or BEAR, Saslik is your selection. Really good & qualified russian food by all measurements. If I could give plus among those 5 stars, i would do it:)

With over 40 years of experience, Saslik definitely has its place among the Russian restaurants in Helsinki. The menu includes various traditional Russian dishes from pickled cucumber with honey and sour cream to blinis and various roasted meats - this is probably one of the few places in Finland where you can have bear. The overcooked elk was so tender... More
